Mercedes-Benz 300 SE rally car.

At the beginning of the 1960s, the 300 SE was Mercedes-Benz’s most powerful rally car. One of its most spectacular performances came in the 1963 touring car Grand Prix in Argentina, where the 300 SE claimed first, second and fourth places. The car shown here did not compete in rallies; equipped with a sunroof, it was used by racing manager Karl Kling as a company car.
